    This evening it was a pig piece, completed with 'plastic potatoes', bagged gravy and not anything else. Why am I saying this. Because most Americans eat this way, they are not aware of what they are doing. We are not covering enough ground as to the education about nutrition here.

    Scalloped potatoes made the old way with real potatoes, flour, real butter, and salt/pepper all baked in the oven in a casserole dish with a few ham slices baked on the top of it. Veggies were cooked cabbage and some cut green beans. And homemade whole-wheat bread. Desert was peach cobbler made from scratch. (Peaches were frozen and baking mix was Jif)

    Milk was store bought whole milk.

    We had family over. Husband grilled pork ribs, baked sweet and white potatoes. We had applesauce from my first canning experience and green beans. Killer chocolate brownie cake for dessert.

    We're not really doing the present thing with the siblings anymore (too expensive!) so hospitality with food and drink are our Christmas gifts.

    Made a Korean dinner tonight. Simmered pork, dumplings (kind of like triangular eggrolls) and a bean sprout salad.

    Just can't get enoughh of Korean food after spending a year there (85-86).

    Could you share some recipes? I bet others would love to make Korean food at home too. I love it and all ethnic foods. :angel:

    We had chicken curry with short grain organic brown rice (is there any other kind? lol). DH made everything from scratch so all I had to do was kick back with a hard cider and enjoy the meal.

    Rabbit stew. Home-raised & harvested fryer. Veggies from my own garden in the stew. Whole grain pasta in the stew. Yummy.

    Tomorrow it will be home-raised & harvested rabbit simmered in Asian Ginger & Sesame dressing, with a side of brown rice and stir-fry veggies.

    After that, I'll be a bit tired of rabbit, and go back to venison. (Curry, stew, whole grain spaghetti & meatballs, etc.)

    No plastic potatoes here!
